Silicon Alley Roundup: Running Down Dreams

I talked about the Facebook IPO being a stimulus package.  That lasted for just a few minutes and I won’t even mention the mess that has come up over the last week.  I’m sure you’ve read plenty, and I’m tired of hearing and talking about it, so I’ll spare you.

Silicon Alley Roundup: Accelerating into 2012. ‘Siri’ously.

2012 is off to a great start and my New Years resolutions are still holding strong.  I’m not going to curse it, but so far, so good.  Dibsie has been rocking in the first week as one of the 10 new companies in the Entrepreneur Roundtable Accelerator’s second class.  It is an incredible opportunity and one I’m extremely grateful for.… Read more →
